    Dear All --

    It's been a while since we updated this thread!

    We've asked Paula (formerly WhiteCrowBlackDeer) to join our team. (For new members: Avalon moderators are all known by their real names.)

    We're all delighted that she's accepted. As many of you know, for quite a while she's been one of the most supportive, pleasant, friendly, perceptive and consistent members of the forum, and is a great asset to our community. The mods are now teasing her behind the scenes as she's never before been on Skype (which is how the mods keep in touch with one another on a 24/7 continuous running chat).

    We've invited one or two others as well: watch this space. Committing to being a mod is an important decision, and it's natural for invitees to take their time when considering their response. One member we invited, who would have been a credit to the team, gracefully declined due to their workload. We'll update this thread again soon when other responses are received.

    As a full update, the current list of mods is:
    • Bill Ryan
    • christian
    • Christine
    • Ilie Pandia
    • karelia
    • Kristin
    • Marianne
    • Murray
    • Paul
    • Paula
    • Sierra
    The two admins in the team are Ilie and Paul, the heroic ubergeeks without whom the forum would not function.

    Hello Avalonian Kin,

    Having worn a mod hat for less than a day, I was able to see how much compassion and patience Bill, the Administrators and Moderators exhibit. My wish is for everyone to walk in their shoes. I believe I better serve the community by being me and not a mod.

    Thank you for your encouraging words and support.

    Sincerely,
    Paula/WhiteCrowBlackDeer

    You are most amazing person and soul, Paula, and you know best where and how you can be of help. I must say that the team is doing so much behind the curtains (I had a glimpse once : ), more than meets the eye of us prattling members

    It is in micro system, a group of trusted people that gather together to handle forum chores, make fair and honest decisions in cases that call for that, put an eye on what is going on on the threads (and that's a lot!), go on dozens of application forms (may there be more!) and in general act for the best of this community, be attentive and deal with any 'guests' that are not what they appear to be on the forum and many times stand for criticism for that..
    Administrators are basically holding this place technically (I am not the person to ask about it, being a geek with not so much as 2% of computure knowledge, and that's the lowest level! ) and allowing it to operate smoothly, trying to make sure that security functions are working properly in the present and will in future, Ilie and Paul are always thinking on how to improve the forum systems (and it ain't a knitting forum) etc, etc.

    They deserve a wave of good energy coming their way! cause it ain't always easy to stick with the job! saying that, it is fun and interesting and it allows to keep a close eye on Bill Ryan and his exploits (watch, learn, enjoy : )

    Thank you kindly, Paula for your participation in the forum, you always bring your beautiful energy signature and make an impact as it is.

    Kindly,

    Limor

    Hello All,

    I see the forum as a place to exchange thoughts and knowledge, and build relationships. It’s a place where each brings in their strengths and to uncover and to grow beyond their weaknesses.

    Those addicted to the rush of drama, prevent the greater number from coming forward to openly express and learn in a holistic way. Most learn by trial and error, tweaking their ideas. The forum is their sounding board. It’s critical that it’s a safe place.

    So many people want on the forum because of the diverse subjects and thoughts. The new mix of people keeps the energy fresh. I’m blown away by some of their thoughts and ideas.

    The forum is a reflection of it’s Members and Administration. It’s no accident that everyone wants in. My wish is for Project Avalon to continue to stand out as a model for other forums to follow.

    Respectfully submitted,
    Paula

    One day's service and look at what you managed to do in that one day

    Service well rendered I would say.

    One can do as much for Avalon without a badge as one can do with a badge. I know this first hand as you may know I have been on all sides of the fence, from being a site-administrator (for the predecessor to this version of Avalon) to "just" a member.

    This forum is a multifaceted jewel. Each of those facets needs its own special polish - and its a complicated balancing act that works here.

    Thanks for polishing a few more of those facets.

    Congrats to Paula! Excellent!

    And another congrats to all the "in - training" mods recently acknowledge as fully trained mods (Murray, Christine .. or am I thinking of Kristin .. ?)

    I read through this thread mainly because I'm a moderator on another forum. I wanted to get an idea of how mod operations differ between the two. This is a much larger forum. My hat's off to the folks who keep it all together here. Moderating at my home forum makes my eyes water and my head spin sometimes. So THANK YOU ALL for all your hard work. Yes, I did really have to shout that one phrase.

    Hi Gatita!

    Thanks for the appreciation!

    There is another thread on the current team which gets updated as time flows:

    "La liberté de chacun s'arrête là où commence celle des autres"
    “There is a condition worse than blindness, and that is, seeing something that isn't there.” LRH

    The psycho's utter terror: "This universe is entirely composed -- but for one trivial exception -- of others."
